Cinema Sound Foley Library: Hollywood-level immersive audio for all

Impact Soundworks is proud to announce the release of Cinema Sound Foley Library, a virtual instrument built for sound designers, foley artists, editors, DIY directors, and other post-production professionals.

Cinema Sound Foley Library (or CSFL) allows you to easily create Hollywood-level immersive audio by "performing" foley via MIDI. This saves lots of time (and money) compared to recording your own foley or assembling audio piecemeal from multiple libraries. And as you'll see, the sheer depth & breadth of content in this collection compared to its price makes it a no-brainer.

Created in collaboration with Cinema Sound, the world's leading experts in film audio education, CSFL includes a massive library (54,000+ samples) of carefully categorized samples that can be performed, edited, layered, and mixed within Kontakt. No other tools required. It's also fully Kontakt Player and NKS compatible!

Let's take a look...

Sound Browser

Each patch of CSFL covers a broad range of sounds, like Female Footsteps (pictured above), Male Footsteps, Skin & Miscellaneous, Clothes, and Ancillary (which covers a huge range of 18,000+ bonus sounds in miscellaneous categories.)

You can quickly browse and audition sounds by category, surface, material (etc), which will help you quickly match foley to the action happening on screen. This multi-bank/layer setup lets you work within a single MIDI channel per category - again saving time and project setup.

Once you've selected the sound categories you want, an integrated editing setup lets you trim and adjust each sample. These tweaks are available on a per-sample basis. This way, you can get your foley sitting perfectly within a full mix all without using external tracks or plugins.

Integrated Mixing & Editing

And just like many of our recent releases, we've included the Console FX rack & mixer, so you can further sculpt and mix the sound with 30 included EQs, compressors, reverbs, delays, distortion units and much more.

See It In Action

Take a look at 5 video clips before & after CSFL is used to fill in all the foley-less moments!

And here's our quick walkthrough of the UI, features, and sound types.

What Can CSFL Do For Your Projects?
  • Eliminate sameness with a massive variety of male & female footsteps
  • Perfectly match on-screen steps with separate heel, toe, pick-up, and stop samples
  • Capture movement & intimacy with clothing and skin touches
  • Build tension with body percussion and grunts
  • Add horror and battle elements with impacts and weapons
  • Bring action to life with crunches, swishes, rustles, and more

Other Key Features
  • Over 54,000 samples recorded at pristine 24/96
  • Full frequency range - no pre-mixing or EQ applied, so you can sculpt your mix
  • Complete modular FX rack (Console) built in
  • Fully NKS compatible
  • Works with the free Kontakt Player

Cinema Sound has produced a huge range of free tutorial videos for this instrument showing how to use it to its fullest potential. Check them out on the product page!

Pricing & Availability

Cinema Sound Foley Library is available now for the introductory price of $179 (list $199). Its convenient, powerful tools will save you time in post-production, but we think this is also an unbeatable value compared to other foley libraries and how much (or how little) content they include!

I'd be curious about comparisons to UVI Walker, which is very good. I'm interested in the other foley aspects CSF offers, but it looks very footstep-centric and may be largely redundant if one has Walker.
